mood swings and thyroid goiter/nodule changes

Hi All,
Amazingly, my neck appears to be shrinking! After 1.5 years of synthroid and cytomel and repeatly increasing the dose of synthroid up to 150 and still growing more and more nodules, suddenly, my neck is getting smaller! (I don't have hashis). I had two CT scans in three weeks time about a month ago and I swear the iodine in them is what caused this - but I can't get any doctors to admit that.

Anyway though, I am having terrible mood swings/depression/rage/crying spells and irrational hysteria and don't feel like myself (my poor husband - he's been so good to me through all this). Is it possible it's being caused by the apparently rapid changes in my thyroid - or possibly that I am having some hyper symtpoms from the 150 dose? The anxiety is so bad I want to crawl out of my skin! My BP is 130/80s (down from 150/100 - got high when I got thyroid nodules) and I am not losing weight (in fact I gained ten more lbs since March). My pulse is usually 95-110. Having many more frequent trips to the bathroom - a rather sudden change (which I don't mind so much after so many years of not being able to go). Also under lots of stress....and had a very stressful month of May....

Thanks all and best wishes

Re: mood swings and thyroid goiter/nodule changes

If you have a feeling that you are jumping out of your skin, many trips to the bathroom, your high pulse rate, you could be hyper.

Of course, if you have been going through a lot of stress, it can cause many symptoms also.

Your high pulse rate should be watched carefully.

If your resting pulse rate is high, that means you are hyper. When you set down and rest for 20 minutes, check it at that time.

Re: mood swings and thyroid goiter/nodule changes

Although I do have hashi's and do NOT take any meds.............I have had the same thing happen to me in the last few weeks.

My thyroid/nodules were really tender and achey and even a feeling of having to sleep with my head looking to the right and then boom, I woke up and everything seemed to have shrunk over night. It was the strangest thing! I am feeling very hypo though with periods during the day of feeling hyper. I was so cold yesterday ( on a gorgeous day) I thought I was going to have to turn the heat on and today I am sweating like a pig.

Let me know how you progress with this. I hope your meds are finally working for you! Enjoy your holiday.
